I had several calls this year to capture swarms, the only problem with it is when the swarm is in a house that someone lives in or they are too high in a tree to get to them.   I don't do the ones in houses for fear of damaging the house. does anyone know how to capture these types of swarms any advice would be helpful. :?

I suggest you just start reading the HONEYBEE REMOVAL forum.  Plenty of ideas, recounts, pictures, etc.  I picked up all the knowledge I needed from that forum and did six swarm removals and ten cut-outs this year.
